Studio City

Studio City, Los Angeles

Type :  

  Summary  

Studio City is an affluent residential neighborhood within the City of Los Angeles, California in the San Fernando Valley. Studio City expands over four ZIP code areas: 91604 and sections of 91602, 91607 and 90210.

The stretch of Ventura Boulevard that runs through Studio City is the neighborhood's principal commercial corridor.

  History  

Studio City occupies land formerly part of Rancho Ex-Mission San Fernando. This land changed hands several times during the late 19th Century and was eventually owned by J. B. Lankershim and eight other developers who organized the Lankershim Ranch Land and Water Company. In 1899, however, the area lost most water rights to Los Angeles and was no longer viable for farming.

Construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct began in 1908 and water reached the San Fernando Valley in November, 1913. Real estate boomed, and a syndicate led by Harry Chandler, business manager of the Los Angeles Times, with Hobart Johnstone Whitley, Isaac Van Nuys, and James Boon Lankershim acquired the remaining of the southern half of the former Mission lands—everything west of the Lankershim town limits and south of present day Roscoe Boulevard excepting the Rancho Encino. Whitley platted the area of present day Studio City from portions of the existing town of Lankershim as well as the eastern part of the new acquisition.

In 1927 Mack Sennett began building a new studio on 20 acres donated by the land developer. The area around the studio was named Studio City.

In 1955 Studio City's Station 78 became the first racially integrated station in the Los Angeles Fire Department.
